"Any use instead of A&E ?"

About: Bognor Regis War Memorial Hospital

I've just 'searched' for my nearest Minor Injuries Unit, in response to BBC South report of NHS askng people to go to MIU's rather than hospital A&E. Great - there's Bognor Regis War Memorial Hospital just down the road from me. When is it open ? Monday - Friday 9 till 5, closed all weekend. So no better than Maywood GP surgery also working 'weekday only' Hint to NHS/GMC: That's why people go to A&E !

This comment is well made, and we acknowledge the frustration people can feel when NHS services are not open. It’s something we’ll consider seriously as we review the ways we work going forward. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and we hope that in the end you were able to get the treatment you needed.
